Jeff Shanley


Born and raised in South Florida, I've always been the creative "black sheep" in a family of doctors and engineers. I've been making up and writing stories for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until I read JRR Tolkien's THE LORD OF THE RINGS that I felt compelled to create my own fully-formed secondary world. The end result was MATHION: BOOK ONE OF THE MAVONDURI TRILOGY, and THE MAVONDURI TRILOGY as a whole.
